Nacogdoches police have arrested a 16-year-old accused of assaulting two people at home in the early-morning hours Thursday.

The suspect's name was not being released as of Friday morning because the suspect is a minor, though a statement released by the Nacogdoches Police Department stated the suspect was charged with aggravated robbery and was being held at a juvenile-detention center.

The victims of the attack, who suffered "extensive injuries" were hospitalized and in stable condition as of Friday morning, according to the department.

The suspect, reportedly armed with a gun, allegedly broke into a home in the 100 block of Wortham Dr. around 1:45 a.m. and attacked the residents while demanding property.
